As we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US, I want to let you know how much I appreciate you and your continued support. As a healer, I’m so used to being the one who helps others, but the love, support, and encouragement that so many of you have expressed as I continue my weight loss journey has been nothing short of overwhelming and humbling. You remind me daily of what I teach.
It’s just as important to receive as it is to give.
During the holiday rush, there will be times when you are tired, overwhelmed, sad, confused, and angry. During those times, it’s especially important for you to slow down and receive no matter how busy you are. For example, you could start putting aside money now to treat yourself to a massage. Or, you could schedule a pedicure or reflexology appointment. You get the point.
Remember to be kind yourself and give yourself a break. You are not superman or superwoman. No one is…even when it looks like they are.
Your imperfections are often your greatest assets.
You don’t see it that way because you are viewing
them from the opposite side of the lens.
The parts of you that you view as imperfect offer you
many opportunities for growth.
They also offer you many opportunities to see
things from the other side of the coin.
What if your procrastination can be
used as a tool to teach people how
to think before they act?
What if your quick temper is a tool that can be used
constructively to help correct injustices?
What if your laziness is a tool that can
show people how to slow down and stop
and smell the roses?
Take some time to inventory your seeming imperfections.
Then take some time to see how they can be turned around
and used as tools instead of obstacles.
All it takes is a slight change in perspective.
And if all else fails:
Sending you much love and gratitude…..
